satellite high - the muscular sorrow of the sad brained beardman

i'm not sure what to say about this album's title but the music is solid throughout. on his latest release, bay area MC/producer satellite high throws out his darkest, most cohesive, concise and musically interesting album to date. the production on this album references all classic eras of hip hop (and many other genres) yet remains current and very true to SH's intense DIY ethic. the musical palette in play here is much more diverse than the average bedroom rapper's midi controller and 808 emulator, with many of the sounds, notably the percussion, coming from acoustic instruments. lyrically it is very introspective album, although it still carries some of the antagonism that gives the best rap it's edge.

get it here for five bucks.
